From Wikipedia : On January 3 2015, the Hoegh Osaka developed a severe list shortly after sailing from Southampton, Hampshire, United Kingdom for Bremerhaven, Germany. According to the owners she was beached intentionally on the Bramble Bank in the Solent, off the Isle of Wight and settled with a 52° list. Her 24 crew and a pilot were rescued by Coastguard, Royal Air Force-Westland Sea King (RMB Chivenor) helicopters and by lifeboat. The Calshot (D-class), Cowes and Yarmouth (Severn-class) Lifeboats attended, as did four tugboats. Those rescued by helicopter were taken to the airfield HMS Daedalus, near Lee-on-the-Solent. The ship was carrying a cargo of 1,400 vehicles about 70 pieces of construction equipment. An attempt to refloat the ship was scheduled for January 7th, but was cancelled when more water than expected was discovered inside the vessel. The ship refloated without outside assistance later on January 7th due to high tide and strong winds. She was taken in tow and moored some 2 miles East at Alpha Anchorage, between East Cowes and Lee-on-the-Solent to await further salvage operations. On January 22nd Hoegh Osaka was towed in to Southampton. Salvage operations having reduced the list to 5°.
